Cerdana (Etudes Pittoresques) de Sévérac
1. Arrival in Cerdegna ; 2. Minstrels and Gleaners ; 3. The Mule-Drivers before the Christ of Llivia; 4. The Return of the Mule-Drivers
These studies are Spanish in feeling and portray incidents in the province of Cerdegna, the first piece depicting the arrival of a tartane, which is a two-wheeler Catalan dog cart. The second study is a romance on a pilgrimage to Font Romeu, and is based on the theme of a Cerdana, which is a popular Cerdegna dance. Michael Mullinar , the well-known pianist and composer, has introduced to Midland listeners a number of interesting works by modern foreign composers.

' Can new industries cure present mass unemployment?'
A discussion between GEORGE JONES ,
The principal new speaker at this session of Midland Parliament is Lieut.-Colonel H. Jarrett-Kerr , of Cheltenhem, who is representative in the United Kingdom of the Rural Reconstruction League of India. He will advocate land settlement schemes as a valuable contribution towards the solution of unemployment and also a much-needed corrective of the overurbanisation of today. Graham Castle, Secretary of the Gloucestershire Rural Community Council, is also new to Midland Parliament, but not to broadcasting, for he discussed ' Village Life Today ' with Geoffrey Boumphrey at the microphone a month ago. Herbert Buckler , a Leicester manufacturer, was in the discussion on unemployment insurance and pensions. Isaac (' Mickey George , who is employed at a big motor works, and George H. Jones , Secretary of the Midland Miners' Federation, have taken part in most of the Sessions of Midland Parliament. On this occasion, in the absence of Sir Charles Mander , George Jones will be in the chair.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
